Carbonate Diagenesis with Applications to Reservoir Geology

Lecture by Prof. Dr. Hans Machel, Univ. of Alberta, Canada. This 5-day block course provides an overview and critical analysis of the systematic investigation of carbonate diagenesis with applications for Petroleum and Geothermal Reservoir Geology. The course will run for five full days (with ample breaks for coffee and lunch). It will combine a mix of lectures, exercises in thin section analysis, drill core analysis, and possibly a half-day field trip to a quarry. More info here.

17.-21.02.2019, room B2|01 /20. Participants should have a good working knowledge in sedimentology and sedimentary petrology, meaning a geology background is highly recommended for this course. Language of instruction will be both German and English. Successful completion of the course gives 3 credits (CP). TUCaN module no. 11-02-9204, TUCaN course no. 11-02-9203-vu (via “Additional Achievements”).

Remarks concerning exam registration

Dear students, please note that for all exams that you cannot register for in TUCaN you need to use a registration form that can be downloaded from here:

Print the form, fill in the name of the exam, including the TUCaN number of the respective module, sign it, and drop it in the letter box next to my office (B2|02, 1st floor, between rooms 120 and 122). Don't send any scans or faxes, they will not be considered. Also registrations via e-mail will not be considered.
